Don’t talk Dirty to Me

We now find ourselves living in an era where perverse is the new perfect;

Where slutty is the new stylish;

Where crude is the new refined;

And the bad is the new cool.

 

It kind of feels as if we are living in a reverse mode;

Degradation is the new progression;

Immorality is the new fashion-sense;

Shamelessness is worn proudly like designer eye lashes.

 

Gone are the days where decency reigned as the hallmark of civilization;

When savvy speech were well-seasoned with grace and discretion;

Now, how appalling to hear people speak!

Expletives are spewed out as easily as taking in air.

 

Decent speech now bores the ears so we have resorted to foul talk;

Even expressions of affection have to contain at least one bad word;

When and how did we get so twisted?

If one wanted to fit in with the ‘cool guys’, he had to keep up with the trend.

 

Almost all of today’s hit songs contain words which normally should offend women;

But surprisingly, you find the ladies singing alongside and dancing to the tune;

But if the same words were said to them without the tune, they wouldn’t take it lightly;

So what’s with the double standards?

 

Does it mean it is cool to refer to someone with derogative words as long as it is sing-able?  

Or the sound of the bad words just adds some flavor to the song that any other word can’t?

I guess the world prefers the tainted to the pure stuff now.

 

Call me conservative, outmoded and out-of-touch;

But I only want to hear what would calm my soul;

 And not burn my ears and make me cringe in repulsion.

So please don’t talk dirty to me!

    Okay… you’re conservative, outmoded and out-of-touch. But in today’s ‘reverse-speak’ that simply means you’re sound-minded, in-touch with Heaven’s standards and fully useful for the Master’s purposes. …not to mention extremely classy 🙂

    On point. You couldn’t have said that it better; things are not the same anymore. My heart bleeds for our society today.

    Yes, and did you ever notice that they who cry for ‘man’s fine morals’ have the foulest mouths?

    Leading the charge with the depravity of the tongue are the atheists.
